Here is the press release:
The Kingsmen are pleased to announce the addition of Chris Jenkins as our new tenor vocalist.Chris is looking forward to meeting many friends and fans of The Kingsmen as he begins this new chapter in his life.
Chris, 25, has been singing in various ministries and groups since his teenage years, most recently tenor vocalist for the Vintage Quartet since 2010. Prior to joining The Kingsmen, Chris worked as a loan officer and banking manager for the last six years.
“I am so thankful that God has allowed me to do what I have always loved to do,” says Chris. “I could not be more excited about joining a group with such a legacy and rich history as The Kingsmen. I have been a fan of The Kingsmen since I was very young. I look forward to seeing what the future holds with this great quartet, especially this line-up of individuals as they are top-notch vocalists. It is a real honor to follow in the footsteps of some of my heroes.”
Chris will begin touring with the group immediately. In fact he has been filling in with us in recent weeks. Chris, along with his wife Kimberly, and two children make their home right outside of Greensboro, in the piedmont area of North Carolina.
Here is a clip of Chris singing “Oh What a Savior” with Vintage:
I really enjoy Chris’s voice. He’s the opposite of the stereotypical Kingsmen tenor, with a very full, balanced tone. I look forward to seeing what he brings to the group.
